About the artwork:
In this painting, Miller depicts the rocky country surrounding her birthplace, Wakapulkatjara, south-east of Papulankutja (Blackstone, WA) on the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Lands.
As she paints, Miller recalls her travels between Papulankutja and Mantumaru (WA), traversing puli (rocky outcrops) and tali (sand hills) and stopping at rockholes related to her father’s Tjukurrpa (Dreaming).
The viewer becomes immersed in the painting’s gentle shifts in tone and form. There is no need to gain bearings. Through this work, Miller invites us to travel the contours of her Country beside her, appreciating the rhythmic nuances of her sprawling homelands.
About the artist:
Molly Miller was born circa 1948 at Wakapulkatjara, near the tri-state border between South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Miller describes her birthplace as, ‘a beautiful place … lots of rabbits, lots of maku (witchetty grub), lots of honey ants’.
